ACCPAC are offering a raft of prizes for the channel punters who get closest to guessing the exact number of points accumulated by the Melbourne Storm rugby league team after the final round of the NRL home-and-away competition.
ACCPAC, the vendor of a popular accounting software package, this year commenced a one-year sponsorship deal with the 1999 national champions, who are making a late charge for a finals berth after a somewhat disappointing season.
All you have to do to be in line for the major prize, is send your guess for the total amount of points scored by Storm (points scored on the field not the competition ladder) to firstname.lastname@example.org and that's it! First prize is a framed Melbourne Storm jersey signed by the entire 2001 squad. This collector's item has an estimated value of over $5,000.
The next best guess will score a copy of ACCPAC Advantage Series Discovery Edition software, while third place will receive a copy of FAXserve for Microsoft Windows NT.
So take five seconds out, check the NRL competition table and statistics for this year, estimate how many points Storm will score in the few remaining games of the season and email off your entries.
